People Who Missed The Joke By Light-years

Contrary to popular belief, a lot of folks are pretty clever. But sadly, there are just as many people who aggressively won't get the joke. As a general principle, when someone says something incomprehensibly dumb but it also has a whole bunch of likes or people responding with any form of "haha" then it's reasonable to assume that that thing they said is some kind of joke. You don't want to be the kind of person responding to a joke as if it's an assertion, or you just might become one of the many ranks of mockable people who desperately didn't get the joke.

Man Catches Mouse Twice, Upsets Cat And Girlfriend, Mouse's Reign Continues

The problem with finding a mouse in your humble abode is that it basically implies that there are other mice running amok. It's an unfortunate realization to have, no doubt, but one that's best resolved as soon as possible. The best course of action can be to seal that home up so that there are no entry areas for the mice to return. The thing is, it sounds like this guy had a completely different approach that was destined for dramatic failure. Hopefully the family was able to get the issue resolved.

Frightening Signs That Mean Serious Business

With the many threats in this world, we thankfully have ominous signs to go with them. While it's extremely frightening to see a sign that says "falling snakes" or "invisible poison gas area" or "molten lead splatter zone" it's still better that we have the warning in the first place. With all the varied and creative threats to dodge, it's no question why we have all these creepy signs that make their message clear.

Bizarre Architecture And Straight Up Job Fails

It's easy to forget that nobody's safe from a failed attempt.

This classic video where Bert Kreischer ends up disclosing the insane amount of Kool-Aid that he consumes in a day, and Tom Segura's reaction of genuine shock/uncontrollable laughter might bring you back to a moment you've had with a friend when they nonchalantly shared some ridiculous habit they were practicing, and your own bewilderment. It is an ungodly amount of Kool-Aid. So much sugar. So much.

This kid thought he was gonna play a friendly game of chess, but he had no idea that they brought in an actual chess master to show him the true meaning of chess. That giant health bar and Dark Souls stuff is just icing on the cake.

Apparently in reality the game went relatively wholesomely, but who has time for that.

Wholesome Secrets People Have Been Keeping

During these trying and tumultuous times it's terribly easy to forget that there are in fact people out in the world that are committed to humbly spreading acts of pure loving kindness. You've probably seen your fair share of people that have decided to take the route of raving about their "selfless" acts on social media, to the point where it almost seems like the very act of kindness was conceptualized and carried out for the sole sake of raking in some clout. Not only is such an approach toward acts of generosity just a little bit unbecoming, but it also manages to effortlessly irritate other folks that witness it.

So, an AskReddit thread like this that's dedicated to highlighting people's best kept wholesome secrets is just the kind of collection of insights that can really reignite your faith in humanity. A huge part in setting a positive mindset can be sourced in what one is actually steering their attention toward. Sometimes, we can become so conditioned by all the different technological tools available at our disposal, and oftentimes all the stressful headlines that said tools can generate for our unconscious consumption that we don't fully realize the impact that their having on our well being. Thus, redirecting one's attention to threads and other bits of wholesome media can work wonders for a nice little positive mood boost.

Maybe you've been someone who was on the receiving end of one of these acts of selfless kindness. Perhaps, a spontaneous moment arose when you were just muddling through a typical, bank account-sapping trip to the grocery store, when suddenly a perfect stranger decides to help you out with some grocery items. And it's done so from a genuinely gracious place. There's something strange about those kinds of actions that possess the capacity to inspire more of us to keep the good energy flowing. It's like the wholesome generosity momentarily knocks us out of our daily automated processes where we're so often just racing from point A to point B, and instead slows us down, and encourages us to look for ways where we might end up being able to help out another fellow human being with their life pursuits. As mentioned at the beginning of this ramble, when the times get tough it falls on us to proactively seek out ways to help others outside of ourselves. Without a little bit of support from folks, the avalanche of fails and other frustrating life events that life just loves to throw one's way, can feel completely exhausting. So, maybe the highlights from this AskReddit thread can act as some kind of catalyst to drive more of the good, wholesome vibes back into the atmosphere.

Obviously we appreciate our fails here. So much. Like an insatiable appetite kind of much. But every now and again it's nice to shake it all up and momentarily observe some of the pure good that is being spread around the world. As it turns out there's a whole lot.

Vegan Employee Suggests Coworker Eat Burger Outside

Being basically cooperative, we don't want to step on people's toes. In this case there's an employee eating a burger in a designated eating space, and their coworker happens to not like that. Compromise is important, but it's also important that people agree on what "compromise" means. Prickly attitudes transcend dietary preference, like this entitled uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding.

The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.
